General InformationThe AmonI (pronounced /æ-moʊn-i/) project at Bath is dedicated to understanding human and animal intelligence through the use of simulation and modelling. Our strategy is to actively engage in research in the natural and social sciences while simulataneously using these experiences and our knowledge as engineers to develop software tools and AI techniques. The result is leading research in both natural and artificial intelligence. Our goals are:
- to maintain an active, publishing research group in the study of natural intelligence, and
- to provide research platforms and other AI tools which are accessible to students and researchers, including those in the social and behavioral sciences.
- The book Modelling Natural Action Selection (Seth, Prescott & Bryson, eds.) was published by Cambridge University Press in November, 2011. 20% discount for clicking this link.
